Recalls Suzuki, Mercedes, Mazda, Jeep and Dodge

Recalls Suzuki, Mercedes, Mazda, Jeep and Dodge


We are finishing the week and the best way to do it is with the calls for review from the European Commission.

On this occasion we have appreciated the presence of several errors related to polluting emissions, something that worries us because we do not know very well if it is due to specific problems or a general problem.

Mazda recalls two models that were discontinued 11 years ago because it has detected a quality problem in some parts and is going to change them.

The rest of the recalls have to do with fires, design flaws or assembly errors.

Before putting your hands to your head, we recommend that You check if the VIN of your car is affected by the call for review issued itself.

Risk type: Fire

Corrosion protection in the high-voltage battery housing cannot be guaranteed to last for the life of the vehicle. After the vehicle has been in use for a longer period of time, the battery case may corrode under certain specific environmental conditions. In this case, the sealing effect of the battery case could be gradually compromised, allowing moisture to penetrate the battery. This could lead to insulation failures, resulting in the inability to restart the vehicle after the engine is switched off, which could increase the risk of fire.

Brand: SUZUKI
